Linked-Up Cowl Crochet Pattern

This Cowl pattern is super
 easy but looks complicated. 
It is also very adjustable 
for any length you want.

I chose Vanna's Choice yarn because I love how 
All the colors blend so well together,
as well as,  how light and soft the yarn is.

Skill : Easy

Hook - H
Yarn - Vanna's Choice  - 
4 colors of choice( C1, C2, C3, C4)

Stitches:

Slip St ( sl st)
Half  Double Crochet  (hdc)

Notes:
ch1 at end of rows does not count as a st.
Cowl measures approx. 26 inches around, to adjust length add 
or subtract chs in increments of 10 chs.

Trim :
With C1, working across the first end of the cowl, evenly space 36 hdc,
placing 4 hdc in the end of each row. Turn to the side,

Working down the side, *1 hdc in each of the 5hdc, 5 hdc in the 5hdc space, 
Repeat down the side of the Cowl. turn to the side, 

Working across the other end of the cowl, evenly space 36 hdc,
 placing 4 hdc in the end of each row. turn to the side,

Working down the last side, *1 hdc in each of the 5hdc, 5 hdc in the 5hdc space, 
Repeat down the side of the Cowl. turn to the side, do not tie off.

Place the 2 ends together and sew closed with sl st across, tie off.

This is a great Spring Cowl, 
when you want a little warmth, 
but not a heavy scarf.
